The survey reveals deep divisions over women's roles in society, splits that may play out in the November elections.


For example, 33% of Americans say "Most men are better suited emotionally for politics than most women." But 44% of evangelical Protestants agree, more than other Christians and markedly higher than Jews (29%), other religions (23%), and those with no religion (14%).


Baylor's data were gathered in 2007, when Sen. Hillary Clinton was seeking the Democratic nomination, but long before Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was named to the Republican vice presidential ticket, putting motherhood and gender in the spotlight. Palin is a mother of five, including an infant with Down syndrome.

Lets face it, if you don't vote McCain-Palin your sexist and Obama-Biden your racist.

I am adamant that I must prove I'm not either by voting for wacky Cynthia McKinney.
